the republican was george bush and the day before the election he went and campaigned in pennsylvania. and the next day, george bush lost pennsylvania. last time around as well the sunday before the election, there's john mccain campaigning in pennsylvania. and then john mccain loses pennsylvania. right before the election, you can set your watch by it. the republican presidential contender will go and campaign in pennsylvania. and every year the media responds by saying, wow the republican is going to pennsylvania. maybe the republicans are going to win pennsylvania this year. does this mean the republicans are planning on winning pennsylvania this year e. and the republicans say, yes, we're going there because we're going to win pennsylvania and they lose it every year. the reason they do this every year is because they want to be seen as super confident. they want to be seen as so confident they are expanding the map. they want to create the impression that they are going to win big. they don't need to go to the so-called battleground states. they have locked all those up. they hav
recovery. that's well better than the george bush recovery and our modest growth, i agree with you, should be higher. it's also the fastest growth rate of all the advanced countries of the world. the world economy is in a tough spot. so, i think just looking at the conditions in the u.s. and saying it's because of u.s. policy is a little misleading. stuart: okay, what about this 14.6% real unemployment rate. because that's an indication of how it feels out there on the ground. >> yes. stuart: how it feels, it's a political thing, i understand that and it's not pure economics, i do understand that, but that's the reality on the ground. >> no, i'm not disputing that. look, i'm not disputing that the real job market conditions are different than just what the standard unemployment number is. stuart: hold on a second. and. >> wait, wait, wait. here is what i said. we didn't get our money's worth-- we didn't get our money's worth. you go an extra 5 1/2 trillion into debt and i expect better than 7.9 unemployment rate and 14.6 real. >> stuart, the 14.6 unemployment rate, you keep failing to ment
george bush and obama has cut the red tape. that is not something that republicans thought was possible at the federal level. >> and how big a government does a big country need? how big a government does staten island need when it is under water tonight? it needs a bigger government and it needs the american government in there. one of the things, new york city has a lot of government. there are 60 departments in the city. and the fact of the matter is the irony is that all of this government replaces a lot of freedom. and who is going to have a say in that government. how will be things be distributed in the hard of the argument? the question is it going to be there for folks that are poor and on medicaid. it is about who would benefit? >> the thing that has happened that has been painful is that fema seems to be working better than it did under george bush and obama has cut the red tape. that is not something that republicans thought was possible at the federal level. >> and how big a government does a big country need? how big a government does staten island need when it is under wa
is i've put out fewer regulations than george bush did. some were significant. obviously, dodd/frank, welfare -- wall street reform is a big example of that. but i have actually initiated a whole process to look back at all the old regulations to see, are there ones that don't work? that should be a project republicans are happy to work with me on. because if we're going to streamline government, we should do it smartly. i've said that i want to consolidate a whole bunch of government agencies. we should have one secretary of business instead of nine different departments that are dealing with things like getting loans to sba or helping companies with exports. there should be a one-stop shop. now, the reason we haven't done that is not because of some big ideological difference. it has to do with congress talking a good game about wanting to streamline government but being very protective about not giving up their jurisdiction over various pieces of government. so there are going to be a whole bunch of things i think we can work on. the first thing, though, is let's go ahead an
george bush's popularity, but it wasn't until katrina came along. and i think coalesce an argument that people were making which was that, you know, government had become sort of demonized by the bush white house and the republican congress and that we were seeing the potential effects of a government that couldn't respond in an emergency and that there was a substantive basis for that, for saying that we have to have a strong infrastructure. we have to be able to respond on a large scale quickly in a crisis. so i think to your point, yes. i think that is a fair argument to make right now. i think it's a little unfair that people are saying romney basically wants to abolish fema. there's a complicated debate that has a lot to do with sending responsibilities back to the states. i've heard people that romney basically wants to do away with fema. i don't think that's quite right. >> michael, there was a tweet yesterday that amused me from @lolgop who by the way everyone should follow. he's hysterical. he said for halloween and the five days that follow, the romney campaign is dressin
research said and what the republicans have pushed back on is it didn't work. the george bush administration is seven years of empirical evidence that that does not work as an economic program. >> do you think, andy, this latest jobs number changes the trajectory of the election on tuesday? >> i think it just firms up people's understanding and the consumer confidence number, i think, is really important as well. things are getting better, slower than we want. we need to do more. i do think it firms up people's belief we can have four more years. >> probably up until hurricane sandy, you know, it was -- it really did feel like mitt romney was going to win this election. now, i don't know if sandy changes things or not. the president showed leadership. so i think that certainly has been a positive for him. if romney does get elected, give me your idea of what the ramifications are for the economy, for the unions. how do you see things playing out if mitt romney wins? >> i think it would be sad day for the middle class. i think it'll be great day for people who have a lot of mon
the responsibility elsewhere. the economy, it's george bush's fault. benghazi, hillary clinton's fault. well, the buck stops with the president of the united states. he asked for the job. it's his responsibility to stay on top of it and he right now is not staying on top of this recovery. >> rupert murdoch has tweeted tonight that he thinks that governor christie should now publicly declare very loudly and clearly, redeclare his support for mitt romney given all the praise he's lavished on the president and if he doesn't, then he would bear the blame, according to mr. murdoch, for the next four years in barack obama gets in. what do you make of that? >> oh, i don't go that far at all. i think at the point at which chris christie was saying that it was all quite legitimate. i think president obama at the beginning of this did keep his concentration on this and i think he was entitled to what chris christie said about him. what i'm saying is in the last couple of days, he has been 100% devoted to running for office. he has taken his eye off the ball and in some parts of new york, some parts of
. this was a 40-state landslide for george bush sr. in 1988. in the middle of the country, the sea of red that went blue, iowa, minnesota and wisconsin. there were local factors in the upper midwest. the farm economy collapsed in the mid-1980s and raeagan's standing was lower than it was elsewhere. republicans were push punished there for the state of economy. think about the auto bailout and the lower unemployment rate there, and i think there is a reward for obama for the sense among those voters that things are getting a little better here than maybe they otherwise would be. >> in a state that feels like it has not been than the country economically for a while, and you cannot understate how important the auto bailout political dynamic has been there. last week after she squabbled over exactly what romney said about the bailout in his op-ed, that was the most viewed "new york times" op-ed. the romney campaign is trying to project strength in ohio. john kasich came out and said romney will win ohio, but the tactics really speak and are telling a different story. they released an ad that

swerving in any way toward the center just ask george w. bush's father how that works. and so he would absolutely be enslaved to whatever the dictates were of the house republicans and we know what they would be and so you can't -- you can't -- and there's no point in looking at his past anyway. you know, he's -- there's never been a politician where past means less. >> yeah, exactly. >> and there's such a misnomer with romney care. that was really massachusetts legislature care, they wrote that bill. they dictated that bill. they positioned it in such a way he had to sign it. they knew where the sign line was. and where the veto line was. and they pushed it right up to there and he did what governors do which is sign. he wasn't in there creating that legislation. >> the last question before we go to break, ari, the president's contention that the fever is going to break somehow and a lot of folks are pontiff cating what happens to the republican party do they say we were too conservative, not conservative enough, if the tea party still has a seat in congress and more power in the sena
something new about one of the candidates and the way that they -- say, george w. bush's famous dui story came out just before the 2000 race did. i think you will hear a lot of romney people blame the storm if he loses, but i tend to think that where we were before the storm is where we'll end up. >> i have to leave with you this tweet. ricky gervais tweeted. just arrived back at my new york home. still the greatest city in the world. f you, sandy. welcome back, ricky. and you have given everyone at home a bit of a smile. back after the break.

obviously. >>> finally, total blackout. last month i told you a few days before the election george w. bush would give the keynote speech a the a conference in the cayman islands, one of the offshore tax havens where mitt romney has invested millions of the dollars. not ideal timing for the campaign of romney. the event went on as planned yesterday but don't expect any kind of review of w.'s speech. according to nbc, quote, the keynote speech by the former president was totally closed to all journalists and conference organizers were banned from discussing any aspect of it. the restrictions were imposed by the former president's own staff. there you have it. any advice the former president had for investing money in offshore tax haches was reserved for the people who paid $4,000 to attend the conference. by the way, the miami herald posted the ap's account of w's speech on their website. there's no mention of mitt romney in the piece, but check out the similar stories bar next to the piece. topics like mitt romney's tax return fails to quiet critics and mitt romney and the 47%. i guess it c
has made progress and a vote for governor romney is a vote for president george w. bush's policies. >> governor romney has been using all his talents as a salesman to dress up these very same policies that failed our country so badly. the very same policies we have been cleaning up after for the past four years. >> the candidates continue to sprint to the. election officials are insuring americans can the next week even with power outages in the contest and key swing state of ohio. the secretary of state office tells fox business all polling place is currently have power for early voting and the state anticipates a smooth election day. dennis: rich edson. cheryl: on the topic of election day five days from the election ap has filed the catawba campaign donors. for president obama more than three million each from chicago media group founder and hedge fund manager and hollywood film producer. recognize mr. katzenberg. for governor romney the numbers are much higher led by sheldon adelson and $44 million followed by founder of conglomerate and head of huge real-estate empire. those a
enough risk in their lives. barack obama was more orderly than john mccain. george w. bush was more orderly than john kerry. and so if i'm a candidate this year, i'm trying to reassure people i'm the guy who can help you out when forces much bigger than you come in and give you a big wallop. >> you said a minute ago, you're not quite sure where mitt romney's soul is, and i think a lot of people, republicans included would agree with you about that. is he socially conservative? is he the massachusetts moderate? is he a small-government conservative? does that trouble you about what kind of president he would be? in other words, if we don't know who he is now, should we worry about who he would be if he got into office? >> yeah. it does trouble me. it disturbs me about how many different shapes he's taken. from a sheer management perspective. if you work in the reagan administration, if you started meeting at the deputy's level, you know what the president wants already, so you figure out how to enact what he basically wants. if you work for a president who doesn't know what he wants,
. on the other hand, george bush 43 had his best moment, i always thought, at ground zero when he put his arm around that fireman that day and said, "i can hear you, and they're going to be hearing you in other parts of the world." that was enormous symbolism for the country, reassuring, in command. and at the same time, it said we're going to act here. and governor christie is a jersey guy, through and through. and what we're seeing in the last 24 hours with him, i think, is what i've seen with him over the last couple of years, wherever he's appeared. i didn't think he had the greatest keynote in the world, but the fact is that he is what he is. when he began to raise hell with the mayor of atlantic city for not following his orders, saying i don't give a damn about the election, i think people respond to that, democrat or republican. >> because it's real. president bush, you mentioned that moment as well as the first pitch soon after -- >> at the world series, incredible. >> incredibly symbolic and brave on a number of levels. he probably shouldn't have done it, but he did it. >> these kin

campaign and the george w. bush was starting to take off. four years ago, hamilton county, normally republican, has to be republican for romney to win. when you came here four years ago, no doubt mccain campaign was on life support and the president carried this county four years ago. so in going around this morning, i can tell you this, both sides are working extra hard, the obama campaign concedes the romney campaign is doing much better than the mccain campaign. governor romney will be in this area, not cincinnati, but to the north of here tonight. we're told republicans expect some 35,000 people at that rally. if that kind of a number shows up, let's get ready for a long count in ohio. >> oh, yeah. i've been going around the state, you're here. and it is get out the vote, get out the vote early, early, early. that's what both sides are focusing on. you're right. the republicans here are extremely organized and are really motivated this time because they know what happened back in 2008. early voting, i've been watching it, what about what you've seen in the same state where i am,
reaches its apex, president george w. bush not out campaigning for mitt romney. but rather speaking at an investment conference in the cayman islands. organizers declined comment. tickets, $4,000 apiece. >> oh, my goodness. >> sir richard branson said to be there as well. >> there you go. "the charleston daily mail." west virginia still feeling impacts of sandy in the form of snow. in some counties, 80% of residents have no power. and in places three feet of snow cover the ground. this must be just unbelievable. forest crews and fema have been working around the clock with chain saws to carve up fallen trees but more are falling under wet, heavy snow. >> "the washington post," the ipad mini goes on sale. apple expects to sell 1 million this weekend. put that in perspective, apple sold 5 million units of the iphone 5 in september. almost two inches smaller than the full-size version, but 330 bucks more expensive than competitors' model. >> 200 in the first day just to halperin. >> halperin. he hoards apple products. he's a hoarder. >> you never know. >> mika, we should point out one
and i were talking about this in the green room at a time and i remember back to 192 when george h.w. bush, the first bush presidency was on the line, bill clinton was battling him, 1992. bush had a recession, jobs were not being created, but the last jobs number there was a downtick in unemployment, a good positive jobs number that came out with four days to go before the election, and no one knew about it. no one paid any attention to it. obviously one side spun it as a positive, one side spun it as a negative but people had already made their mind up. what's baked into the election the three people that are still undecided in the united states of america about this election are not waiting for the jobs number to come out this morning at 8:30 to make up their final decision. i think most everyone understands right now that the economy is not growing as fast as it could, we're not creating the jobs that we could and almost no number that comes out this morning is going to benefit the election at this point in time. >> jared, you agree with that? i'll also throw into the mix we've
